Description

Tim Berne has been described as "a saxophonist and composer of granite conviction" by The New York Times. Incidentals is the fourth album from his spirited Snakeoil band. And it's the second (following on from 2015's You've Been Watching Me) to feature the quintet line-up in which his core group with clarinettist Oscar Noriega, pianist Matt Mitchell and drummer/vibraphonist Ches Smith is augmented by guitarist Ryan Ferreira. The music is characteristically action-packed in the Berne tradition: powerful, dynamic, often fast-moving yet also very clear in all its teeming detail. "We somehow achieved more sonic space by adding another player," the bandleader notes wonderingly. It's an impression maintained even when producer David Torn takes up his own guitar in a cameo at the climax of the modestly-titled "Sideshow" (in reality a 26-minute epic journey), soloing amid thunderous timpani and over serpentine melody outlined by sax and clarinet. Incidentals is issued as Snakeoil gear up for a tour of North America through September and October, followed by European dates in November, including two nights at the Vortex Jazz Club - the 15th and 16th - during the London Jazz Festival. Personnel: Tim Berne (alto saxophone); Oscar Noriega (clarinet, bass clarinet); Ryan Ferreira (guitars); Matt Mitchell (piano); Ches Smith (drums, vibraphone, percussion, timpani). With David Torn: guitar (on one track)
